8 Front Doors to Welcome You Home in Style

By Annie Thornton, Houzz

It’s probably the last thing we touch when we leave the house, and it’s probably the first thing we encounter on our way in. No matter where we live, we all have and frequently use a front door. This collection of front doors and entryways shows us different ways to celebrate those daily run-ins; some are bursting with color, and others showcase subtle but intricate details. Click the first photo to get started, and tell us which door you’d like to walk through every day.

1. The metal details and rich wood tones of this salvaged door create an entry that’s just as vivid as one in a bright color. Moravian star pendants line the walkway.
